Erwin's Story...
Hi everyone! I'm ERWIN! I've been waiting two months to make my Facebook debut and say hi to you all. Yesterday, I enjoyed an amazing day away from the shelter with my new volunteer friends! They took me to a German restaurant in downtown Glendale called Haus Murphy. And YES, that's my very own lederhosen outfit they made me! ;-) I got lots of attention in it and the restaurant liked me so much, they even gave me my own sausage treat! Food is one of my FAVORITE things in the world (next to my tennis ball) and the way to my heart is definitely through my stomach, BOL! During lunch, I was a very good boy and wagged my tail at everyone that walked by, accepted pets and showed off "sit" for a treat. With my belly full and my heart happy, I quietly laid down and chewed on my tennis ball for a bit. Ahhhh, this is the life!

After lunch, we worked off the pretzels and sausage with a little walk around the area. I LOVE to go on walks and walk nicely on the leash once I settle down a bit! I'm a very curious guy and like to sniff everything. I came to some rocks and climbed right up them- best view in the park!

I'll admit that IN the shelter, I'm so distracted with all the sights and sounds, that I tend to ignore people. Away from the shelter though, I'm much more affectionate! That said, I'm not one of those "in your face" type dogs. Pets are cool and belly rubs are awesome (the humans think I just discovered them!), but I won't bug you all the time for attention. I'm happy to just quietly chill next to you and be with you.

On the way back from the shelter, I was soooo sleepy from my big day, I crawled into the human's lap and took a snooze. I wish every day could be like this- an adventure, a full belly, love...could you help my dream come true and take me HOME? You can visit me at the West Valley shelter in Phx (2500 S. 27th Ave.). My $20 adoption fee includes neuter, rabies certificate and County license. My ID number to help you find me is: A3874928. Hope to see you SOON! <3

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Erwin, a Phoenix Boxer/American Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boxer/American Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Phoenix, or seeking a Boxer/American Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Phoenix.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Phoenix breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boxer/American Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Boxer/American Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
